    I’m trying to claim a section of our craft room, but so far it’s just the storage side for my sewing supplies. My machine and iron are in the family room and it works well. I can watch TV with the kids and hubby while I sew.

    For a long time (in my current apartment) I would sew on my husband’s computer desk or on my writing desk in the living room when he was home. Then, a few months ago, I noticed the nook where the water heater/central heater was located in the laundry room was large enough to move a table and chair in, along with an ironing board. There’s even shelves and a pegboard back there, and a 1950s fridge (with robin’s egg blue interior)! I have patterns, notions, clothes that need repairing/altering/remaking, muslins, interfacings and interlinings on the wire shelves, yarns, knitting tools and “seasonal” fabrics in the fridge and mockups and in-progresses on the pegboard. Most of my fabrics are in storage bins on the other side of the room. The only fly in my ointment is the upstairs neighbors plunked a giant tv in front of the one shelf, but I can’t complain because it’s a common area, and have a bunch of other crap on the workbench (which stores stuff that came with the house, like paints). It works great when I have the area cleaned up, but right now, some things that were in my closet have exploded onto the tables and ironing board. :P

    I sew in my sewing “area”. I have blocked off a section of our basement and it is dedicated to my sewing:)

    The bedroom in my apartment is the biggest room in the place, so I took over half for a dedicated sewing space, but I also take over the living room when I feel like watching TV while I sew (my husband must be a patient man!)

    I sew on the kitchen table. My greatest wish is a sewing room of my own.

    I keep moving from room to room. I find that I do like sewing at the kitchen table the best because I’m not isolated in a room all by myself. I just wish I knew how to keep all the things organised so it didn’t look so untidy.

    Yes. sorta. Ok, not really? I have my sewing machine in the laundry room, and all of my accessories etc., but all cutting, marking, and ironing happen in the kitchen.

    I do have a sewing room. It is very fanciful and eccentric. It showcases everything I love about life: color, whimsy, nostalgia, shock, weirdness and sweetness.

    I just purchased a house and have a room dedicated to my crafting… It needs a little overhaul and I will be rearranging after christmas… but it works well. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    I do have a dedicated sewing space. It is in our basement and rather dark, so I painted everything white and all of my furniture is white. I love the way my fabric shelf pops with color. It is great to have a space to make a mess, spread out and not have to clean-up half way through a project. Before I had this space I was on our dining room table. I had sunshine there, but also two little kids picking up pins and playing with my sewing machine.
